     Traffic at the complete review in November was up slightly over last year.
     Only one new review made the bestseller list -- the unusual theMystery.doc. But the review of a new Geoff Nicholson novel (The Miranda) was enough to propel his author page to the top of that list (despite the review only making it to 34th most popular for the month).

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 lists.
